The National Hardware Show (NHS) announced they’re launching NHS Connects, a year-round digital platform designed for the hardware and home improvement community. NHS Connects will provide retailers, wholesalers, distributors, suppliers and manufacturers with year-round industry content, up-to-date topics and education, direct connections and appointment setting with leading suppliers and sources for new products.
The platform is constantly updated with the newest information which includes scheduled and pre-recorded webinars, podcasts and industry education programs. At NHS Connects, new product launches will be happening along with direct appointment scheduling for connecting with suppliers. NHS is also concerned about the health and wellbeing of hardware and home improvement retailers during this stressful time so a special health and wellness section is included at NHS Connects that provides free yoga classes as well as content from the National Hardware Retail Association to help with productivity, motivation, and mental health during the COVID-19 crisis.
“We understand the significant impact NHS has on our customers’ business especially during this unprecedented time in which hardware and home improvement stores are considered essential. Our new online platform enables exhibitors and attendees to get the most out of the Show through creating a resource for community, connection and innovation,” said Rich Russo, industry vice president for the National Hardware Show. “NHS Connects reimagines sourcing strategies and encourages industry leaders to stay united with manufacturers and brands not only during the Show but throughout the year. The platform will provide a plethora of resources that benefit all attendees to help increase productivity and maximize efficiency.”
Due to the COVID-19 governmental restrictions, the 75th Annual National Hardware Show was postponed in May and rescheduled for September 1-3, 2020 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. To register for the event, click here.
